12 competitors came to the line for the last in the summer I.O.M series round ten, over the summer 28 skippers have at some stage come to Scotland Farm to contest the series, The weather forecast delivered perfect blue sky’s and a steady south west wind of around 10/12 knots. Neil Coleman took on the duties of R,O. The line had a slight stb bias but once started it was a long first beat ,, Mick C 46 got well into his stride with his new V9 closely followed by Dave Thomas, also with a V9 and fresh from his Victory in the Clive Hand the previous week, Alan Newman with his AB4 got third spot in the opening race, The racing was good-natured and friendly. With Mick C taking the first 8 races out of 10 there was only going to be one winner in this one. There was some good individual sailing and on a number of occasions, new comer Geoff Burrell 51 showed lightning speed, so he is one to watch for the future. Alan Newman sailed very well and should take a lot from this performance. Results are below for your records .  Many thanks to Neil for the R O duties

Clive Hand Memorial Trophy 2016

A fine day greeted the 26 competitors for the 2016 Clive Hand Memorial Trophy , not to much breeze maybe 5to 10 knots by the sky was clear and although a hint of a shower, we all stayed dry. Bacon Butties were the order of the day from 8am, along with Normans tea and coffee stand doing brisk business. Phil Harpham was Race Officer and did a superb job when you consider it was his first time, he was assisted by son Joe and two young ladies Jackie and Jill did the finishing line and scoring, so a massive thanks to all of them ,,  so on to the racing, there was always enough breeze to keep the boats moving and the beat was very tricky with some quite big shifts that lay in wait for the inexperienced and experienced alike, It wasn’t the only thing that caught skippers out,, but we will not go into that as it seemed to even itself out throughout the fleet, frustrating as it was . The two seeding races were won by Don Charlesworth and Nigel Brown ( Britpop and V9 ) Last years winner John Tushingham unfortunately had a multitude of problems in the first three/four  races with Radio and green stuff and so was always playing catchup, It was interesting that the top three only had one win each. also interesting was that the Lincoln club had 6 members in the top ten. At the end of the day Dave Thomas 41 sailing his new secondhand V9 for the first time was the most consistent to take the Trophy from Graham Allen and John Tushingham full results below , and pictures will be updated on this post as they come in. We also believe a large amount was raised for the R.N.L.I from competitors and visitors so thank you all so much. We also hope you had a pleasant days racing and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Congratulations to Dave Thomas .
